Greetings from France

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

I live in Toulon (south of france), I am 28 and I discovered Model Ship World while looking for info on the Santa Maria by Artesania Latina, which I just started building (will post a log asap).

I have done modeling since my childhood, plastic aircraft mainly (since I have always been into flying stuff, and now work in aviation) : however some times ago I built the Wright Flyer wood model kit from Guillow's, and I was really seduced by the natural aspect of it, to have to use less chemicals, and I enjoyed workind with wood more than plastic generally.

In the mean time I have been more and more attracted to nautical stuff lately (even if I have always been close to this domain, my father working on ships and submarines of the navy) thanks to multiple 'modern' references (series like black sails or vikings, games like assassin's creed) or more traditional ones (documentaries, books).

Because of (thanks to?) the Covid-19 lockdown I had a lot of "free" time and this logically led me to building my first wood ship model, the Santa Maria, and buying tools for it.

Thank you to all already for all the very useful information that we can find on this website, and in davance my apologies for the english mistakes...

 

PJ.

Welcome PJ. Je suis Allen Caron from Warner Robins, GA. You have come to a great site and as said before please do a model blog. I am building the Santa Maria by Billing Boats. It will be great comparing your ship and mine as we do our builds.

Hello Allen,

 

Sure, I just started the log : 

 

 

It's cool that you are doing the same ship in the same time, which scale is it ?

 

Do you intend to do a log as well ? If so could you share the link ?

 

I would be pretty interested to see how the billy boat kit looks like compared to the artesania latina one.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
